You guys are being a little harsh. I mean, the guy is an icon.
I may be wrong, cause I wasn't there (born too late), but the way I understand it, without Owsley there would have been no Acid Tests. And without the Acid Tests there would have been no Grateful Dead as we knew it.
If someone has some insight from personal experience, please eleborate - I live for this stuff - the history

Bear emphatically claimed that the Grateful Dead didn't use Fender top amps - (it's a long story, best posted privately).

I just saw a clear print of the 1969 Playboy after Dark with GD, and during Mountains Of The Moon, there's a Fender top amp just like the one Bear said they didn't use.

But I'm not going to write him a year later with this post script, no need to stir all that up again...

Be grateful if he turns up more tapes someday- don't want to ruffle his feathers, while he's in a good position to potentially add anything to our archives of vintage Dead.
